    Throw out all my socks! Buy 12 new pairs of the same brand socks! I'll never have to match my socks up when I do laundry again!

    I've been doing that for several years now, with hanes ankle socks. They pissed me off last year, because they started making them a wee little bit differently, so now I have to try and match up the old versions and the new versions. They look exactly the same on the outside, so I have to turn them inside out to tell. Dammit!

  3. This, my friends, is the sign of pure genius.

  10. I used to HATE doing that. SOMEHOW, no matter HOW MANY NEW PAIRS of socks that I buy to replace the old ones, I still ALWAYS end up matching socks!!!

  14. you, my friend, have just make life a thousend times easyer! :hyper:
  15. yea i'll say
  16. um, is that so you can wear one pair for a whole month for each month? For the sake of your bandmates, might I suggest 7 pairs. One for each day of the week.

    I started doing this about 2 years ago, My wife originally thought I was insane, now she buys me 2 new packs of socks each year for Chirstmas and tosses last years batch. If I hadn't had to wait until my slow brain came up with it all on my own my life would have been much easier when I did my own laundry...

    Lazy men of the world, UNITE!!!! Spread the Word!!!

    Try going sockless while wearing Doc Martin's. After an hour, your feet will smell like someone took a crap on a dead skunk.
